DBS checks

DBS Checks

It is a statutory requirement that all adults working closely with children are DBS checked. However, we believe that there is the potential for these DBS checks to be less than meaningful and have therefore again exceeded the statutory requirement.

Absolutely every person who is employed by Aylmerton Field Study Centre – instructors, domestic staff, drivers and office staff must undergo a satisfactory enhanced DBS check.

In addition, as this DBS clearance is only valid for the time in which a person has been resident in the UK, we feel unable to employ any person who has not been resident in the UK for at least three years.
